More than 1.000 players loved the Perfumed Cutlass hunt and are waiting now for the next. Next Friday starts The Case of Praying Mary. The story fits to the Halloween month October, because "sweet" Mary Millar is a serial killer.
Widow Millar was nicknamed 'Praying Mary' due to gruesome killings of three of her husbands and praying next to their dead bodies. Mary denied everything and claimed it was all a misunderstanding. Her motives were never understood. Once Mary was caught during her murderous act towards husband number four, she was sent to the Peatonville Asylum and was locked away in an isolated cell. The number XVIII was engraved over and over on Mary's cell, but no one was able to figure out the meaning for it. Mary herself passed away under sinister circumstances in the Peatonville Asylum in 1934 and the case went cold.
Millar's abandoned house was long closed from public until it was eventually sold to a family fairly recently. While refurbishing the house, they discovered a hidden journal underneath the planks on the floor. The journal seems to have been written by Mary herself and it describes clearly how Mary did not only kill the three men who married her, but also the 15, who refused her proposal or otherwise got in her way.
After some thorough investigation it's been confirmed, that 15 men went indeed missing during the years of 1920 and 1933. The grounds of the former Millar house were turned upside down, but no bodies were found. The journal is the only clue of what has happened to these men. On each page of the journal, next to the description of the killings, Mary has drawn a cross with jibberish on it. It's believed that when someone deciphers the message, the bodies of the men can finally be found and their souls released to rest in peace.
